My grandpa had diabetes, lost his leg before he died. A day behind with Day 5 of Health Activists Writers Month Challenge. (In my defense I did post yesterday and yesterdays post was viewed more than any other post Ive ever written it just wasnt my Day 5 post Thank you to all who viewed the post and shared your thoughts your support means so very much.) Day 5 Challenge: If I could do anything as a Health Activist Think big today! Money/time/physical limitations are no longer an issue. What is your biggest goal that is now possible? And/Or Whats your one, three, or five-year plan for your Health Activism? If money and time were not issues I would work towards educating the world about Type 1 Diabetes. I would use either existing posters ( International Diabetes Foundation has created one) and/or create new posters, flyers, videos about the early symptoms of Type 1 diabetes to distribute to all doctors offices (pediatric & general health care providers), school health offices and hospitals. I mean truck loads of them and I would hire folks to hang the posters so they didnt sit rolled up in some back office where advertisements for over priced meds go). The posters would include illustrations of children and adults doing the things that many parents and patients miss (or explain away) prior to diagnosis or after it is too late to save the child/person. The posters will also identify myths about Type 1 well-managed diabetes is the cause of absolutely nothing (Dr. William Polonsky) complications can happen and will happen with poorly managed diabetes a person with type 1 diabetes is always insulin dependent a person with T1 has to check blood sugar at least 4 times a day yes it hurts a parent of a child with type 1 diabetes did not cause it to happen a person with T1 can do Continue reading >>

Diabetic Healthcare Awareness In Malaysia: The Role Of Poster As A Communication Medium

Diabetic Healthcare Awareness In Malaysia: The Role Of Poster As A Communication Medium

Volume 91 , 10 October 2013, Pages 539-544 Poster has been a medium of communication in public healthcare since World War I and II. During then, Europe, America and Soviet used poster to channel the minds of their society towards one common insight. From this iconic scenario, the term poster propaganda has emerged. To date, posters have been used extensively in many areas especially healthcare education. Poster in healthcare as particular is the tool and medium for health-behaviour change to attain healthcare awareness. In Malaysia, numerous diabetic campaigns on diabetic healthcare awareness with the aid of posters have been held throughout the country. The use of poster by the government is meant to trigger the public on the hazardous alarm of diabetes. However, despite various efforts from government to the public through diabetes posters, Malaysian diabetes statistic still increases drastically from 1.6 million in 2011 to 2.6 million in 2012. The huge increase in statistic invites an enquiry on the role of diabetic posters as a communication medium on diabetic healthcare awareness. This study explores public opinions through observation and interview in three different regions to describe and interpret public opinion on current diabetic posters. Beneficial entries from this study would go to the Ministry of Health Malaysia, Malaysian Diabetic Society and the public towards a better understanding on the role of diabetic poster as a communication medium in diabetic healthcare awareness.

What Is Diabetes Self-management Education?

What Is Diabetes Self-management Education?

Diabetes self-management education helps people to stay healthy and prevent costly complications, yet very few people with diabetes attend a course. Diabetes UK's Taking Control campaign aims to increase the provision and uptake of diabetes self-management education, so that everyone with diabetes has the skills and confidence to take control of their condition. This page gives healthcare professionals and local decision makers more information about patient education options. It includes resources to use with your patients and advice on improving uptake. People learn about their condition in different ways. A useful framework for understanding diabetes education, broadly based on a model used in Scotland, is in three levels: Level three: Structured education that meets nationally-agreed criteria (defined byNICE/SIGN), including an evidence-based curriculum, quality assurance of teaching standards and regular audit. Level two: Ongoing learning that may be quite informal, perhaps through a peer group. Level one: Information and one-to-one advice. Level three education: what is the evidence base? Diabetes education courses, often known as structured education, improve key outcomes, reduce the onset of complications and are cost effective or even cost saving. For a summary of the published evidence on structured education download Diabetes UK's reportDiabetes Education: the big missed opportunity in diabetes care (PDF, 285KB).
